Customer Question
Have a 2000 Deville...

Have a 2000 Deville DHS. Power locks, interior lights, trunk and gas cap have stopped working. Will bring into dealer soon but need to get gas cap open. Manual says release is in trunk but am having trouble locating. Can you help? Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's manual for this?

Says could be fuse or relay located behind back seat

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your DeVille yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not fixing myself, just need help locating the manual release for the gas cap

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just that it is a 2000 Deville DHS

Hello I will help,

Sounds like you have a broken ground wire. To open the gas flap you can run a credit card along the side of the flap that opens. This will push back the lock plunger and the door should open so you can fuel up.

Please let me know if that works for you

Thanks

Glad to help, I suspect the broken wire is in the door hinge area but testing will be necessary to find out exactly where.

Please complete the rating if you have no further questions

Thank you
